These wonderful little nuggets are just crushed cacao beans so they’re full of tons of polyphenols, and specifically flavanols, that make this a glorious SuperFood.
Polyphenols are SuperNutrients. They act as antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, antimutagens, antimircrobials, antivirals, and antifungals. They help protect our DNA and work in synergy with vitamins C and E. Flavanols are a class of polyphenols. Cacao doesn’t just have some flavanols, it has a lot! And that’s good because they’re important to heart health as well as your overall good health.
Tierra Farms Organic Ray Cacao Nibs are very crunchy and intensely chocolate. They’re not sweet so they’re more like a super crunchy nut piece. And here’s a bit of surprising info: in addition to all the polyphenols, 1 ounce of these nibs provides 9 grams of fiber and 70 percent of your daily vitamin C value too.
Tierra Farms’ Organic Raw Cacao Nibs are great in oatmeal, smoothies, on top of yogurt or added to baked goods. You can also add them to salads or top pizza or chili with them. Once you eat them, you’ll find all kinds of ways to add them into your daily routine.
